Come see this EXTRA wide (25 foot), three-family townhouse with a large, professionally landscaped garden. At 3,370SF, this is not your typical small Williamsburg townhouse, with a warren of small rooms. The 25 foot width and 42 foot create spacious 1,000SF floor plates on all 3 levels. 9 foot ceilings enhance the generous volumes. There is also a clean, well-lit, stand-up 830SF basement that can be used for additional storage, a rec room, or a workshop/studio. The L train stop is located 1 block away. This is an extremely well-maintained property with many mechanical upgrades. The historical details have been preserved creating that true vintage Brooklyn charm. In the back, there is a beautiful multi-level garden with hand-laid antique blue stone. Flowering Crepe Myrtles, a prolific cherry tree, two bountiful fig bushes and many other specimen plantings create a summer idyll designed for entertaining and BBQs. The tool shed keeps things looking nice and tidy. The photos of the fruit are actual photos of what the garden produces every Summer.This section of Powers Street is one of the quietest and 'greenest' blocks in the neighborhood. There are, not one, but two (!) active community gardens that are registered with the NYC Parks Department Green Thumb program. Many other property owners nearby have elaborate gardens with specimen flowers, raspberries, pear and peach trees. Folks on this block are intent of maintaining a type of living and lifestyle that is quickly disappearing from Brooklyn. Many owners have taken measures to restrict development on the block so as to preserve green, open space and to ensure that 'light and air' are provided to both the street front and backyards. Lot size is 25' x 82'. House will be delivered vacant.
